Make an appointment (or two) today so you can be entered to win!
Not everyone can donate platelets, which is part of why donations are so important. Platelets only have a shelf life of 5 days, which means that it’s already planned for use by the time you finish your donation (and after it’s been thoroughly tested). Here are a few things to know if you’d like to donate platelets:
- If you’ve ever been pregnant, you need a test to make sure you’re able to give platelets due to certain antibodies that can appear. If you haven’t had this test yet and you’ve been pregnant before, you won’t be able to donate during this sweepstakes. We apologize for the inconvenience.
- Donating platelets takes longer than a typical donation. Because platelets make up less than 1% of our total blood volume, it takes more time to separate it. In all, donors can expect to spend at least two hours from check-in to aftercare.
- You can donate platelets every 14 days, so up to 24 times per year!
